Today was Savannah's very first day of school EVER! One of the assigned readings (me reading to her) was Little Bo Peep. I had no idea what that rhyme really said. Bo Peep is not quite the lady I remembered. She's tougher! And, while I really enjoyed her in Toy Story and Toy Story 2, I wonder if she was not in Toy Story 3 (not even referred to!) because Woody was finally made aware of her lambs' tails. Those poor lambs lost their tails. That's bad enough, right? Bo Peep finds them, dries them, (my oldest kid says it would have to be dried of the blood) and then she reattaches them. Hmmm....in college I took a semester of Children's Lit. Disney has improved on many of those stories. Well, in some ways. They did away with some of the gore. That's probably good. I guess I thought Mother Goose was different. I'm not disappointed at all---just surprised I never caught it. Woody, though, was Woody disappointed?
Anyway, we all learned a little something new today so here are some pictures of our first day of school.

Yes, those are socks. Seriously, my boys were thrilled! Who knew? Christmas may be a whole lot cheaper this year...
